Dreaming of A White Christmas

Hello and Happy Tuesday! This is the end of a wonderful long weekend and now a back to school day for me. We are having summer like weather the last few days and got a lot done around the house, spent time craft shopping with my sister, and spent most of today with my hubby taking a day trip up into NH. A perfect long weekend only to realize that back to reality. I guess I need some way to pay for all my crafting goodys!

I had started this card last week and put it aside because I couldn't decide what DP I wanted to use. I bought some really snowflake paper on Sat. and thought I would use that but decided I loved the Bearly Mine more for with her. I really like blue so making a monochromatic card was easy once I picked it up again. I am pretty happy with the end result, I am glad I didn't finish it last week. I probably wouldn't have liked it as much.
